I never much liked Orcs, because I thought they were quite ugly - males even more so than females. Despite having played this game for 6,5 years already, it wasn't till last Summer that I finally rolled a female Orc on a realm that some of my guildies had transferred to. Because, y'know, as an altoholic, I really couldn't not have one. But it was my least favourite of the bunch. Well, except for maybe my Gnome Warlock - I have to mute the game every time I play him, because his voice annoys me so. :|Anyway. Now that I'm seeing these new models... hot damn, what a cool chick! She really moved up my popularity ladder, she looks really badass now. If I could afford a race change, I would've done it for one of my home realm toons. Now I'll just have to satisfy myself with the 2 girls I have running around on Draenor.
I like this far better then how the human female turned out. Her eyes are kind of scary. Female orc though looks completely boss.
My second main/first alt is a female orc warlock, and as such I am very, very happy to see a glimpse of her new look this early. I wish they'd previewed the new pigtail hair though. A demon-summoning badass with dark green pigtails confuses people.Oh wait there it is, pigtails.Most looking forward to the troll revamp though. Female trolls faces can't get uglier in the old model, with only one face that doesn't look like a burn victim.
Female orcs look incredible...if only male orcs looked as good. Such a loss.
Too bad Blizz doesn't put this much effort in fixing the problems with the game. Seriously how many times have you zoomed in and looked at your toon? Unless it is the gear that they are wearing, I am sure most people havent. Waste of time in my opinion, especially when the game has so many problems that could be fixed.
Im happy for all the new models and they all look amazing; but still no Trolls? I want my HD Darkspears
Too bad Blizz doesn't put this much effort in fixing the problems with the game.Because that's the art team's job, right?
Makes me glad to have a female orc shaman and warlock those models look damn good, made me more excited for the next expansion. Hopefully this time I'll actually remember to pre-order a Collector's Edition lol.
By the light these models look amazing! I am sooo exited about the new skin colours so i can finially make an orc that looks like Aggra! :). Great job blizz. (Still waiting on the elves tho)
The tusks look wimpy. Disappointing.
Great, I was just thinking female ORCS didn't look enough like supermodels. I'm glad they fixed whatever few features they might have had before that didn't lend themselves to being swimsuit model-like. Oh, but give them Mohawks to remind players they're "rugged" despite their dainty little fangs and pretty eyes, lips, and noses in comparison with their male counterparts. Oh, and make sure they fulfill all male players' fantasies with their cleavage, cause, you know, that's basically the only function of female characters in a video game, even if they are orcs or undead.What, exactly, about that female orc model screams "supermodel" to you? Count the muscles you see on one vs. the other and get back to us.As for cleavage, although I am sympathetic to complaints that games are frequently oversexualized, it is regressive in a totally different way to call out a female model for not being sufficiently androgynous.Two things worth pointing out: (1) The old female orc model is noticeably more endowed than the new one. (2) All of the models, male and female, are in their underwear, but that isn't representative of how they will appear in the game.
LOVE this! So happy that one of my chars is a female orc :) Can't wait to finally see the female troll!
Really nice job !Cant remember since when i was so anxious for a new expansion.Hopefuly they wont make mistakes as they did when MotP was released.
Wer da Trolls mon?
The new character models are just awesome. I love what they've done with the undead, and I can't wait to see what they do with the trolls!
A little bit of graphics tweaking won't save the game in the end. It's getting worse every day.
I am not happy with the new female orc model for the following reasons:1.) She doesn't look "mean" enough. She is an orc for crying out loud! She is NOT a swimsuit model in a sports magazine.2.) why does every female model need to have bulging, heaving, and giggling breasts? Just like pornography, this "game" model further objectifies females as sex objects and raises male expectations of real women. Why dont we see giant bulging sex parts on the male models?3.) Every other depiction of orcs that I have seen they are stalky (short & muscular, somewhat hunched back), dirty, rough, and sort of patched-up looking with scars, piercings, and tattoos. Why dont your new models look like that? This female model is far too "polished" to be an orc.
Yay that my orc female will finally look... uh... female. =)
I'm loving the all the new updated models with Orcs and Undead being the best IMO. Can't wait for WoD.
